The illustrations in this book are stunning. They're vibrant, realistic images outlined in gold, so that everything glows. The message is an environmentalist one; everything is connected, and if we want to have a beautiful world, we have to take care of every part of it.
The text is cumulative, beginning, and ending, with "the world that we want". It could be a simple read-aloud for younger children, a very first stepping stone for learning about ecosystems (and environmentalism), or, using the index in the back, it could be a teaching tool for older children. A person of any age can, and will, appreciate the gorgeous images of our world, as it could be, set afire.
